Suburban Homes Construction Project Quality Management Plan (QMP)
Prepare a quality management plan using the elements described in the PMBOK 6e (Section 188.8.131.52) for the Suburban Homes Construction Project.
Over the course the semester you’ve become familiar with the project and as part of the overall project management plan, a quality management plan is needed to communicate how quality will be met to the satisfaction of each stakeholder involved in a typical residential construction project.
You should perform research on quality standards associated with residential construction to determine applicable standards. At least four (4) quality objectives associated with the project should be defined.
As part of the section on quality tools, include a separate appendix with at least three (3) quality tools that will be used as a part of the project. These can be drawn from: 1) flow charts, 2) check sheets, 3) Pareto diagrams, 4) histograms, 5) control charts, 6) scatter diagrams, 7) affinity diagrams, 8) process decision programs charts, 9) interrelationship digraphs, 10) tree diagrams, 11) prioritization matrices, 12) activity network diagrams, 13) matrix diagrams, 14) inspections, and 15) statistical sampling.
Last, about 1/3 of the plan should be devoted to major procedures relevant for the project for dealing with non-conformance, corrective actions procedures, and continuous improvement procedures.
If information needed to complete a QMP is not explicitly stated in the scenario description or other project artifacts you’ve created or collected for this scenario in the past units, then develop (make-up) the information you need to complete the plan. Use tables and illustrations as needed to convey information.
184.108.40.206 QUALITY MANAGEMENT PLAN
The quality management plan is a component of the project management plan that describes how applicable policies, procedures, and guidelines will be implemented to achieve the quality objectives. It describes the activities and resources necessary for the project management team to achieve the quality objectives set for the project. The quality management plan may be formal or informal, detailed, or broadly framed. The style and detail of the quality management plan are determined by the requirements of the project. The quality management plan should be reviewed early in the project to ensure that decisions are based on accurate information. The beneﬁts of this review can include a sharper focus on the project’s value proposition, reductions in costs, and less frequent schedule overruns that are caused by rework.
The quality management plan may include but is not limited to the following components:
1.Quality standards that will be used by the project;
2.Quality objectives of the project;
3. Quality roles and responsibilities;
4. Project deliverables and processes subject to quality review;
5. Quality control and quality management activities planned for the project; 6.Quality tools that will be used for the project; and
7. Major procedures relevant for the project, such as dealing with non-conformance, corrective actions procedures, and continuous improvement procedures.
